KITCHEN & BATH
Birmingham’s Katie Rodriguez gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “go with the flow.” The interior designer and owner of Katie Rodriguez Design whipped up the perfect recipe for a clever kitchen in the classic Colonial she shares with her husband, Francis, and their two boys. This distinct space was designed with the un-kitchen movement in mind. In addition to being more cohesive with the rest of the home, Rodriguez says this concept can be a more inviting way to cook, dine, and entertain.

Rodriguez’s intention for the multipurpose, peaceful space was to create a place in which the Birmingham homeowners could enjoy a good book, or step away and answer emails. “This room is one of the first things you see as you enter the home, and the artwork is a central focal point,” Rodriguez says. “The intent was to provide something that was both dynamic and peaceful.” The designer commissioned the artwork from The Art of Custom Framing in Troy.

No Jacket Required
When it comes to dining out, clubs and resorts are hanging up their proverbial jackets and ties and forgoing shirtsleeves in favor of a less-formal approach.
As more members look for alternative spots to grab a quick bite on a weeknight or entertain guests over drinks during a Saturday evening on the town, traditional dining rooms are making room for more casual eateries that make it possible for facilities to broaden their dining options while maximizing their overall brands.
